Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic summer and you are excited to be in Year 3.

Our topic for this half term is Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We will be looking at the structure of the Earth, how and why volcanoes are formed and erupt. We will also be creating our very own volcano which will erupt.

PE is on a Monday and Tuesday and this Half term we are focusing on gymnastic routines and Rugby. 

Spellings are given to the children on a Friday and they will be tested the following Friday.

There will be a weekly times tables tests on a Monday.

Books can be changed daily if the reading record is signed. Every child should be reading at least 4 times a week for around 15 minutes. Children are responsible for changing their own reading books.

Volcanoes and Earthquakes

We have started our new topic of Volcanoes and earthquakes. The children have started their volcano art based on Margaret Godfrey abstract art work

Maths

We went looking around School to find items in which you could measure the perimeter

Science

Rock Detectives

Today, we looked at becoming geologists and we were closely observing the appearance and texture of a variety of different rocks. We used this information to help us put these rocks into different categorises.

Maths

Using ICT to develop our mathamatical knowledge of ordering numbers

PE

We have been trying to use our passing skills within a game situation

Making bronze beakers

We have been using clay to try and recreate our very own Bronze Beakers

History

We had a visitor come into School to bring our Stone Age to Iron Age topic to an end.

We learnt all about the historic timeline, using actions to help us remember the whole timeline. We looked at artefacts from the prehistoric period, we created our own house which looked similar to those in the Bronze Age. Finally, we discovered how difficult it would have been to draw cave paintings.

Our lesson was very interesting
